Blues sign Langenbrunner, Arnott
Thursday, July 7, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Blues signed veteran forwards Jamie Langenbrunner and Jason Arnott to one-year deals Wednesday.
Each deal is worth $2.5 million, plus $300,000 in bonuses, and Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said the franchise isn’t necessarily renting the players.
“I just think they wanted to make sure they were going into a situation that they thought was best for them, not only this year but both players want to play multiple years,” Armstrong said. “If we have success as a team and as a group, I don’t see why these relationships can’t continue.”
The Blues have been busy on a minor scale in free agency, also signing veteran forward Scott Nichol and defenseman Kent Huskins. They resigned forwards T.J. Oshie and Matt D’Agostini before free agency.
“We feel we’ve really improved our team since July 1st,” Armstrong said. “I think we’re very comfortable with the group that we have.”
